Uintah Research and Curatorial Center Environmental Assessment
This environmental assessment examines two alternatives: No Action and the National Park Service Preferred Alternative. The Preferred Alternative considers constructing the Uintah Research and Curatorial Center in Vernal, Utah. This facility would serve as a curatorial center and storage site for one of the National Park Service's most valuable museum collections, which is currently being housed in the Quarry Visitor Center at Dinosaur National Monument. The Quarry Visitor Center is the main attraction at Dinosaur National Monument because of the unique rock outcrop containing exposed fossils that makes up a wall of the Center. The Quarry Visitor Center would remain open to the visitors but would no longer be used as a curatorial or storage facility.
